'Once in a life time, there comes the time to challenge your strongest fear and realize that even your foes are merely human.'
Even the worst horde of Orcs will stand and fight like one when challenged... and Orcs even fight when they know they cannot win.' (Rhom, the Elderman from Ishmarin.)
'Centuries before the year of darkness a story was told that the Osther-OC, the strongest and most warlike of all Orcs have challenged their masters in the North. United under the banner of one Lady of War they challenged the strongest evil of the continent. Their destiny was sealed but it was not any foe on the battlefield but only dark magic with the power of the Old that was able to extinguish the fire that burnt in them and turned them into ashes on the fields of Osthemangar.' (Denvil, chronist of the city of Astran, Watch of the North)
